With the invaluable insights, solutions, and expert network provided, your business gains the resilience to effectively tackle the continuously expanding cybersecurity landscape. Here are the key focal points that Cybersec Netherlands will address:

Cy­ber­se­cur­ity Strategy

A well-defined cy­ber­se­cu­ri­ty strategy standar­di­zes security, empowering CISOs to shift from reactive to proactive measures. It reduces security gaps, enhances threat visibility, and aids compliance adherence. With clearly defined roles and res­pon­si­bi­li­ties, sta­ke­hol­ders collaborate to improve the or­ga­ni­za­ti­on’s security posture. A com­pre­hen­si­ve cy­ber­se­cu­ri­ty strategy ensures readiness to combat relevant threats.

Core Topics:

  • Zero Trust Security
  • Security Framework & Defence Strategy
  • Software Security
  • OT/ICS Security
  • 5G Network Security
  • Smart AI Security Solutions

Human Firewall

As threats expand across distributed endpoints and exploit human vul­ne­ra­bi­li­ties, an essential defense is the human firewall. Com­ple­men­ting technical firewalls, it comprises educated and in­cen­ti­vi­zed individuals forming a vital layer of protection. A human firewall spans teams, functions, and tech­no­lo­gies, sa­fe­gu­ar­ding the or­ga­ni­za­ti­on com­pre­hen­si­ve­ly.

Core Topics:

  • Social Engineering Prevention
  • Cy­ber­se­cu­ri­ty Best Practise
  • Employee Powered Security Services
  • Phishing Simulation

Hybrid IT Protection

Following the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing digital trans­for­ma­ti­on, or­ga­ni­za­ti­ons are rapidly embracing cloud services, emphasizing the importance of robust hybrid IT protection. Multi-cloud strategies are employed to mitigate single-point failures, while third-party cloud security providers offer enhanced monitoring and management ca­pa­bi­li­ties. This drives the demand for external and third-party security solutions.

Core Topics:

  • IT Governance Strategy
  • Multi-Cloud Security
  • Remote Work Security
  • Software/In­fra­struc­tu­re/Platform as a Service (S/I/Paas) Security

Data Protection & Privacy

In the modern corporate landscape, data plays a central role. Beyond con­fi­den­ti­a­li­ty, the focus now shifts to data avai­la­bi­li­ty and integrity, becoming the forefront of security concerns. Personal iden­ti­fia­ble information (PII) holds significant black-market and ransom value. To address breaches and misuse, user demand for transpa­ren­cy and control grows, while regulatory compliance becomes in­cre­a­sin­gly intricate. 

Core Topics:

  • Data Protection Regulations
  • Data Loss Prevention
  • Data Protection Tech­no­lo­gies
  • Data Privacy Guidelines

Identity & Access Management

Or­ga­ni­za­ti­ons, even prior to the pandemic, were expanding globally, adopting distributed teams and remote work. COVID-19 further eroded the traditional enterprise perimeter, making it nearly obsolete. As a result, robust Identity & Access Management (IAM) is essential. Zero trust ar­chi­tec­tu­res enable granular control without relying on specific perimeter access enforcement points, meeting the evolving needs of modern or­ga­ni­za­ti­ons. 

Core Topics:

  • Identity Management
  • Digital Identities & Au­then­ti­ca­ti­on
  • Access Control (SSO, MFA, PSK, Biometrics, Privileged Access)
  • Identity Protection

Resilience & Recovery

Cyber resilience empowers or­ga­ni­za­ti­ons to achieve business ac­ce­le­ra­ti­on through proactive preparation, response, and recovery from cyber threats. It enables adap­ta­bi­li­ty in the face of various crises, challenges, and adversities, aiming to ensure or­ga­ni­za­ti­o­nal thriving despite adverse conditions. Cyber recovery focuses on data restoration post-attack or breach, allowing un­in­ter­rup­ted operations through com­pre­hen­si­ve recovery plans. 

Core Topics:

  • Information Security Policies
  • Vul­ne­ra­bi­li­ty Monitoring & Security Monitoring
  • Incident Response Management
  • Business Continuity Management

Cyber Compliance

Cy­ber­se­cu­ri­ty compliance involves im­ple­men­ting pre-defined security measures and controls to manage or­ga­ni­za­ti­o­nal risks and ensure data con­fi­den­ti­a­li­ty. It emphasizes adhering to regulatory authorities, laws, and industry-specific controls for data management and protection. By following a systematic risk governance approach, companies demonstrate reliability and meet industry standards, instilling confidence in customers regarding service delivery. 

Core Topics:

  • Risk Governance
  • Regulatory Cy­ber­se­cu­ri­ty Compliance Framework
  • Data Breach Penalty Prevention
  • Incident Response Plan

Web3 Security

The metaverse is gaining prominence in enterprises for enhancing engagement and user experience. However, it brings challenges such as identity spoofing, account hacking, and avatar takeover. VR and AR headsets are vulnerable to hacks. Location spoofing and device ma­ni­pu­la­ti­on can lead to identity hijacking. The absence of metaverse regulations and privacy invasion for per­so­na­li­zed experiences pose additional concerns. 

Core Topics:

  • Blockchain Analytics
  • KYC Ve­ri­fi­ca­ti­on
  • Smart Contracts Audit
  • De­cen­tra­li­zed Systems
